Moustached horses...

Anybody heard of moustached horses before or have an one? I just came across them when I surffed on the web and actually found it's pretty amusing. What's the meaning of that moustache?

Some pics:

Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Hehe. Cute!
Do you mean the meaning of the word? Mustache is facial hair like that on people:

Yes! One of our trail club members owns a draft and he has a moustache. Very distinguished looking!

I went to the training session for volunteering for horse therapy horse, and the clyde mare we worked with had a 3 inch long curly mustache on each side of her lip, it was the funniest thing I've ever seen

Ugh, that's disgusting. It creeps me out. Whiskers are ok, a full moustache isn't.

I would assume that it is an adaptation after years of grazing on very cold or harsh ground (possibly with stickers or some other sharp thing) to protect the lip but that is only a guess. :) Kinda cute in a pretty wierd way. LOL

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
